Album Notes
Plenty of bluesy, Louisiana/ Delta rooted guitar, from one of South Louisiana's true slide guitar masters. This is collection of Michael Juan Nunez's most ecelctic and interesting songs yet. The amps have been turned up. Drums have been set to 'groove'. The songs are as inclassifiable as MJN himself. From bar fights, to Louisiana politics, to long lost Zydeco greats, to long lost friends...songs of love, hate, becoming clean, and in between. All done with more character, bravdo, and guitar muscle, than anything MJN has realeased before. This will deffinately be one that creeps up on you, and stays stuck in your CD, mp3 player, or iPod.

"Musically, “The American Electric” references Jimmie Vaughan, Jimmy Reed, Derek Trucks and Iggy Pop, as well as old blues greats that permeate each note.."- Steven Landry
"The Baton Rouge Advocate"

You thought you had Michael Juan Nunez pegged as just another Louisiana blues revivalist dude, right? WRONG. Think again. On his new CD, American Electric, Nunez, like some mad scientist locked up in the lab of his Mind, audaciously deconstructs his own love of blues, roots, rock, and folk and comes out with a Frankenstein-like monster that roars, grinds, stomps, jitters, tweaks, and spits at the hallowed totems of the age. Like some kid just reveling in the joy of making music, Michael Juan, at mid-career strangely enough, has thrown out the rule book. Like Tom Waits in the 80s, he’s burning with a new fire and charging into the great unknown, reaching for something stranger and superior to his past efforts. Feeling no allegiance to the purist orthodoxy that dries the lifeblood of new creation, Nunez playfully whips his way through twelve tunes that screech, grind at odd intervals, and scream through forests of invention. This is John Lee Hooker mind-melding with Ray Kurzweil type stuff. Go buy one at www.digstation.com , Barnes and Nobles in Lafayette, or the Louisiana Music Factory in New Orleans. — Dege Legg
